June 29, 20232 min read

"No one should ever be ashamed to nourish their bodies regardless of their size! - Coach Kenya LaShelle Elliott


Food is not just a source of sustenance; it's also deeply personal. Our food choices are influenced by a variety of factors, from cultural background to individual preferences. However, there is an unfortunate phenomenon that affects many of us: food shaming. In this blog post, we'll explore what food shaming is and provide strategies to help you bounce back when faced with it.

8 Reasons

Understanding Food Shaming:

Food shaming occurs when our choices are scrutinized, judged, or mocked by others. It can take various forms, such as comments about portion sizes, dietary restrictions, or even cultural preferences. The impact of food shaming can be significant, leading to feelings of embarrassment, guilt, and insecurity about our food choices.

Bouncing Back from Food Shaming:

Embrace self-compassion: Remember that you deserve kindness and understanding, especially when it comes to your relationship with food. Treat yourself with empathy and respect, reminding yourself that your choices are valid and personal.

Educate yourself: Empower yourself with knowledge about balanced nutrition, different dietary choices, and the concept of intuitive eating. Understanding the science behind food and its impact on the body can help you feel more confident in your decisions.

Seek support: Reach out to trusted friends, family members, or support groups who respect and understand your choices. Surrounding yourself with a positive and non-judgmental community can provide the validation and encouragement you need.

Practice mindfulness: Cultivate a mindful approach to eating by paying attention to your body's hunger and fullness cues. Make choices that honor your well-being and enjoyment of food, focusing on internal cues rather than external opinions.

Focus on self-acceptance: Embrace the uniqueness of your food journey. Remember that your choices are yours alone and are crucial for your overall well-being. Let go of the need for validation from others and celebrate your individuality.


Food shaming can have a detrimental impact on our self-esteem and relationship with food. By implementing strategies like embracing self-compassion, seeking support, and practicing mindfulness, we can bounce back from food shaming and empower ourselves to make choices that honor our well-being. Remember, your food choices are personal, and what matters most is how they make you feel.

So let's break free from the chains of food shaming and celebrate the diversity and individuality of our food journeys.
